A thoroughfare is a transportation route connecting one location to another. Highways, roads, and trails are examples of thoroughfares used by a variety of traffic. On land a thoroughfare may refer to anything from a rough trail to a multi-lane highway with grade separated junctions; on water a thoroughfare may refer to a strait, channel or waterway. The term may also refer to the legal right to use a particular way as distinct from the way itself.
